Christmas Gifts for Kenya

By - Uncategorized

The 58ten Christmas Gift Program is back! Because of the generosity of the entire 58ten community, we have been able to provide a special Christmas party for the homes every year they have been open.

We will again be providing the staff and children with a great meal, along with cake, soda, and new clothes for each child. They look forward to this day every year, and we are grateful for the opportunity to provide these special gifts.

To participate, our suggested gift amount is $30, though any amount would be appreciated. If you would like to give, you can give online at here  or send your check to 58ten, 105 Country Lane, Morgantown, PA, 19543. Any donations given over what is needed for the Christmas Gift Program will be given to the education fund.

Thank you for all that you do to support this community and the children and staff in Kenya. And an early Merry Christmas from all of us!

Looking Back on this Year’s Trip

Trip in Review

Jordan, Jeremy, and I returned from Kenya last month where we were able to spend time with the amazing staff at the homes and with the beautiful children many of you sponsor. There was much to talk about. There was planning. There was praying. And there was fun. There was also the reality check of the challenges that lie ahead, the hardships the children face, and the weight of responsibility so many in the 58ten family have. Sometimes we forget about this responsibility because all of the “action” is happening half-way around the world. But in the midst all of these feelings, the one that was most prominent was the feeling of being humbled. God is fighting for these children in powerful ways, and for some unknowable reason He has chosen us to be a part of it. He has chosen to use us who are weak, full of pride, and, many times, struggling in our own walk with God. Nevertheless, He loves us and rewards us abundantly as we take small steps of faith and generosity. Make no mistake about it, the 58ten community members are a massive blessing to these children in Kenya, but the blessing that is being received is well beyond anything we deserve. Our God is generous, and we are the blessed recipients.
